47%, governor romney with 44%. so what do these numbers tell us? let's bring in tom bevin executive editor of "real clear politics." tom, it is going to be a squeaker of an election if these numbers continue to hold, and it's all about the battleground states, isn't it? >> absolutely. and you notice the one thing obama is at 47% in our average, he's at 47% in the battle grounds, and his job approval rate is at 47%, that's why that job approval rating is such a key indicator and the president's team wants to see that number move up. no president has won election or re-election under 50%, because obviously if people don't think he's doing a good job they won't vote for him, they'll vote for the alternative. jon: at the same time mitt romney rear aegis sowed up the republican nomination not so long ago when rick santorum dropped out of the race. it is possible that voters really don't know romney yet, haven't focused on him and their minds are still to be made up. >> absolutely. that's why president obama and his team have spent an awful lot of money, actually both campaigns have spent
